In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey said that James Comey “has become radioactive” as more evidence is uncovered about the origin of the FBI’s investigation into President Trump’s 2016 campaing.

“Here’s what I can prove, that Jim Comey has become radioactive. People are running away from him like he’s got the plague.” Graham said. “Rosenstein said, ‘No, I wouldn’t have signed the warrant if I knew then what I knew now,’ Sally Yates threw him under the bus, that he went rogue, that he set up General Flynn for, as you say, to manufacture a crime. So, what’s the takeaway here? That Comey sat on top of one of the most corrupt investigations, Crossfire Hurricane, in the history of the FBI, and the rats are jumping ship. Bad day for Jim Comey.”

“So, here’s what I can tell you, that if Comey’s writing a book, it should be called “Rogue.” The best way to describe his tenure as FBI director is that he was rogue. That he ran every stop sign.” Graham said. “There’s no way in hell that he didn’t know the dossier had been basically proved to be unsound by the Russian subsource interview in January. My goal was to prove that he did know, and he got warrants against Carter Page anyway. Here’s the point, that Rosenstein and Yaters are running away from Crossfire Hurricane. She threw Comey under the bus. So, there will become a time to sell your book, Jim Comey. You can come to the Judiciary Committee and sell your next book, because you’ve got a date with the truth, my friend.”
